Officials at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center have launched an investigation after finding 4.2 grams of cocaine on site. Astronauts sure know how to party.
The bag of white powder was first discovered March 7, and now that it has been identified as cocaine, officials announced an “ongoing investigation,” but refuse to say whether the entire NASA staff will be drug tested en masse.
This is the second time in a little over a year that coke has been found at the Space Center: a smaller amount was detected back in January 2010. Apparently coke’s all the rage among the nation’s aerospace set.
And NASA’s salacious, steamy underbelly doesn’t end with just drug use. Remember Lisa Nowak, the female astronaut who pleaded guilty to burglary and battery after planning to kidnap a romantic rival?
Who knew space nerds had such dramatic, hard-partying lives? I suppose if you’re going to fly high, you might as well do it right.
